Medicare Supplement Insurance

You can buy Medicare supplement insurance to help pay some of your out-of-pocket costs that Medicare won’t pay. Because it covers the “gaps” in Medicare coverage, Medicare supplement insurance is often called Medigap insurance.

Types of Medicare supplement Include:

Traditional Supplement Known as Medigap

Medicare Advantage

Otherwise known as MA-PD, these are private policies sold by insurance companies that can include the prescription drug benefit. They are very different from Medicare Supplement policies so ask an insurance professional before determining which one may be best for you.
